to 36 hours to finish that job. you know, the economy is a huge issue in the election, and here in ohio, why are the people in the state with one of the lowest unemployment rates the most worried? some answers on cnn, next. hone are working on a joke with local color. the secure cloud just received a revised intro from the strategist's tablet. and while i make my way into the venue, the candidate will be rehearsing off of his phone. [ candidate ] and thanks to every young face i see out there. [ woman ] his phone is one of his biggest supporters. [ female announcer ] with cisco at the center... working together has never worked so well. try capzasin-hp. it penetrates deep to block pain signals for hours of relief. capzasin-hp. take the pain out of arthritis. >>> with just three days to go until vote issers head to the polls, a new jobs report has both sides taking sides. now companies hired 171,000 employees in october, that is more than any other time in the past eight months. but while hiring has increased, so has unemployment. that rate rose slightly to 7.9%, up from 8% in september.
think it's been a very tough spot for the world economy. and it's not that comfortable but i think you did see the first year dramatic decline and then since that first year, 15 months you've seen some pretty substantial recovery that still has a long way to go before people are going to feel like we're fully recovered. >> austan, let me jump in there. we do still have a long way to go. a couple of charts that a supporter of governor romney would hope people would focus on. first labor force participation rate. it rose slightly to 63.8%. look at this number. back to 1981. let me give you another one. second, the so-called underemployment rate now stands at 14.6%. hey, that's a little bit better. but you know what? this is still a number that a lot of people say is the real feel unemployment rate. >> you're getting -- let's not get a little confused. if you take that real unemployment rate, that's down substantially more over the last three years than the observed regular unemployment rate is down. so you don't want to compare two different numbers. you should take any series and look a
the economy added 171,000 jobs last month. the unemployment rate ticked up to 7.9%. here's what president obama said about these numbers this morning in ohio. >> today our businesses have created nearly 5.5 million new jobs, and this morning we learned that companies hired more workers in october than at any time in the last eight months. >> i want to talk about the economics and the politics of the report with our chief business correspondent ali velshi and john avalon. they're in ohio talking to the voters. ali, let's start with you since you have an economics, numbers guy here. >> yeah. >> we looked at this, and the economy stated by cnn money, they were twpg 125,000 jobs, so this number was higher at 171,000. so you have figures in august and september, also higher than we thought. what do we say about the overall growth and the health of the economy and the recovery? >> you and i talked about this before. i like the jobs creation or job loss numbers. the establishment survey more than i like the unemployment number. by the way, i feel the same way about it when it's low and when it's
in the battleground state of virginia. all day, in fact. last hour in roanoke, he hammered away on the economy and how in his words americans are in worse shape today than they were four years ago, he says because of president obama's policies. our jim acosta also working the campaign trail, and this is the nuts and bolts of the reaction. >> at an event in roanoke, virginia, mitt romney ended a political truce with president obama in the aftermath of hurricane sandy, while he avoided attacking the president during a series of stops across the state of florida, that was not the case here in virginia. romney went after what he often hears outside some of his events from some of the president's supporters who sometimes chant "four more years," romney said it should be more like five more days. and then he went after an idea the president floated out in recent days when mr. obama talked about potentially naming a secretary of business in a second term. here's what romney had to say. >> we don't need the secretary of business to understand business. we need a president who understands business, and i do. a
there to be 250,000 jobs a month created. that is not what you are going to get out of the economy that we came out of. so general ly speaking, this is advantage obama, because he has had job growth since he has come into office with the exception of a few months, but, you know, if i were working for the romney came pain, i would say, really? 7.9% unemployment, and job growth that is not anywhere close to what you are saying it is going to be over the next four years and why should we listen to you about that when you have not done it in this period of time. and then the issue of quality of jobs. president obama can say that he has replaced and more every single job that was lost on his watch, because of a recession that he didn't recreate, but presidential candidate romney says, it is not enough. these are not great quality jobs. so i said earlier today that the revisions to august and september and then the new number for october, 171,000, it is in the vicinity of good job creation. plus 200,000 a month would be good job creation. in august we got 192, and then in september down to 171, and t
in the unemployment rate is a sad reminder that the economy is at a virtual standstill. >> i don't think so. the last month, the unemployment rate came down three ticks. and the romney campaign complained that we hadn't created more jobs. this month, the number of jobs created was 30%, 40% higher than expected and was fairly strong. and then they criticize that the unemployment rate ticked up one tenth. it's the last number before the election, so i think both sides are going to see, try to go through and interpret what it means. i think overall, most economists view it as a fairly solid report. and until we get the growth rate of the economy up faster than 2%, 2.5%, this is probably about what we should expect from a solid report. >> how does one explain the kind of inconsistency? 7.9%. that's up, with unemployment. then you talk about adding 171,000 jobs in october. >> yeah, a great question. a lot of people misunderstood how the jobs work. there's two surveys. the jobs come from a survey of businesses. the unemployt rate comes from a survey of people. each month, there's a lot of variability in bo
, because month to month jobs reports, it is a important milestone by which we can gauge whether the economy is improving. and then, you know, judge the president, what the president is doing. i want you to take a look back to the worst of this recession, guys. this is october of 2009. look at this, the unemployment rate was above 10%. and in this month, 7.9%. you've been traveling to the swing states as i have, what are you hearing, are people feeling better off? today's numbers help any of the candidates? >> well, i tell you, don, we have been on the battleground bus state tour from florida to ohio. people understand the economy is improving. but the real debate is whether it is fast enough and whether mitt romney could have done a better job. in toledo, ohio, today, one of the battle ground counties of ohio, the must win buckeye state, i spoke to mayor bell, he put it out that january 2009, unemployment here was 12.6% in this county. today it is around 7.5, lower than the national average. that is a measurable improvement. that doesn't mean the economy is going on all cylinders right now.

down unemployment in a significant way at this point. it's been kind of stuck. the economy added 114,000 jobs in september. this one is the last option before the election. it takes on that much more importance. both sides are likely to find something to talk about. president obama would say it's better than the 800,000 jobs we were losing when he took office. and romney could come out and say the unemployment rate is still high. and both would be right. economists would say it doesn't really matter. what's going on in your own life? do you have a job? does your spouse have a job? most people will vote with what is happening in their own lives. >> most people hear blah, blah, blah. >> it is really what you're feeling more than statistical. >>> more charges expected in the penn state sex abuse case against the university's former president, graham spanier. multiple reports say pennsylvania's attorney general is expected to announce perjury and obstruction of justice charges against spanier later today. as you know, spanier, in the wake of sandusky's scandal resigned. and he denied kno
